Who was Jean Monnet?

 

  • A man dreaming of a united Europe

This French advisor, politician and economist devoted his work to European integration. As a staunch supporter of a united Europe, he was the major inspirer of the Schuman Declaration leading to the creation of what is considered to be the germ of the European Union: the ECSC (European Coal and Steel Community). Due to the great influence of his personality on the consolidation of a united Europe, Jean Monnet is considered to be one of the fathers of the EU.
